I'm Steve and I've been teaching English since 2006. I have a master's degree in English Language Teaching from Nottingham Trent University. I taught in Poland for four years before starting work at a British university.
I've been giving classes on Skype for five years. The students who have benefited most from my lessons tend to take short classes (20-25 minutes) two or three times a week. The frequency of meetings is far more important than the length of classes because language learners become more confident and fluent if they have regular contact with a second language. It's important to treat English as a regular stress-free habit and not as a chore. Henceforth, in terms of payment, my students pay for a set number of minutes which is easier for everybody. No article or lesson can ever take the same amount of time, so it's better to keep a record of minutes used until your payment has reached its limit.
My teaching methods are quite prescriptive but I believe they make for intriguing lessons and increased learner interest. First of all, I have created over seventy articles based on, for example, my experiences living abroad and reactions to stories in the news. Topics range from renting a flat to travelling in Greece. The texts emphasise the learning of common English constructions and collocations and have been audio recorded as well. I help students organise personalised collocations and sentences into a word table - a method which helped me to master Serbian in half a year. Language learning strategies are an essential weapon in attaining fluency in a second language.
I believe you will greatly benefit from taking lessons with me and I look forward to helping you become a confident English speaker.
